Leopard Wood

Leopard Wood: Has a very conspicuous flecking that gives this wood its namesake. The wood itself is a medium to dark reddish-brown with grey or light brown rays, which resemble the spots of a leopard. Like other woods that exhibit the strongest figure in quartersawn pieces, (such as Sycamore), Leopardwood has the most pronounced figure and displays the largest flecks when perfectly quartersawn; this is due to the wood’s wide medullary rays, whose layout can be seen the clearest when looking at the end-grain.
